FINAL CLUE NOW RELEASED
Welcome to the Boo Humbug Advent Scarf MKAL. Not by any means Bah Humbug - this is a happy and wearable scarf, one you will love forever!
This pattern is charted and contains full written instructions.
Scarves and shawls are so amazingly versatile. Whether you have a snuggly winter warmer or a thin, outfit enhancing, accessory they are just so useful and can lift your outfit as much as your spirits.
This scarf has been designed as an ‘advent shawl’. That does not mean that it is Christmassy, patchwork-like or a series of unrelated patterns lumped together but it flows beautifully and can be worn whatever the season depending on your chosen yarn. There is definitely no holly, berries, baubles, nativity scenes, reindeer or tinsel here - just a scarf for you to knit for you during the most giving season of the year. Just a little selfishness!
I have designed this with sport-weight in mind but as long as you allow for your yardage and needles there is no reason why you could not knit it in a lighter, or even heavier, weight yarn.
You will need
2 skeins of Fyberspates Faery Wings (or equivalent yarn)
550 beads (I used size 5 Miyuki Triangles)
3.75 mm, 4mm and 4.5mm needles. It is worth noting that your first clue will be the centre section and you will work both ends on each clue so interchangeables or two sets of needles will be required.
A comfy chair and
A huge smile!
The first clue will be released on 1st December - the biggest clue and the centre of your scarf. The following clues will be your pattern blocks, one for each end; these will be released on the 8th, 12th, 15th and the final clue will be out on 19th December giving you the opportunity to wear your new scarf on Christmas Day or be able to gift it to a loved one. You might even knit two!
Happy Holidays everyone!
Huge thank you to my wonderful test knitters
